36 Nordic And Baltic Companies Make Red Herring Europe Finalists

Red Herring has announced the 2010 Top 100 Europe Finalists. Among these finalists, there are 36 companies from the Nordics and Baltics. There are 6 from Denmark, 3 from Norway, 12 from Sweden, 1 from Lithuania and 14 from Finland.

Red Herring organises a competition annually for startups to find out the most attractive startups across national borders. The Finalists are evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their respective industries.

Below, are all the finalists from the Nordic and Baltic area:
Accumulate AB (Sweden)
Appear TV (Norway)

It seems that the Nordic and Baltic area has significantly improved their relative standing in the finalists compared to other European countries. Then again, it might be that we participate more and more in these sort of competitions as a way to get publicity. Either way, both are good merits in the end.

Congrats to all the finalists and best of luck to the final leg of the competition!
